Welcome aboard, Katie. Not too clueless really!
Classic composition putting the eyes almost on the third of the frame; nice mono treatment too. There are two small highlights on the right edge of the frame that would be better removed, but in general terms a really promising image.

The image is actually too small, - should be bigger!

Its 240 X 320 and should be 600 at its longest side, - if you upload again in the bigger size it will look much better, - its a good shot.

Welcome aboard. This is a good image. I like the light and the sad longing look in the girls face.

Hi again, Katie. The Techniques section of this site has various tips for resizing photos for uploading. I can't find any reference to Coreldraw but there is a reference to a piece of free software; you can find the article by clicking on {link=]this link[/link].

Alternatively you can download a free image manipulation programme from Google called Picasa2 (it is a Google product, it's very straightforward to use) which I think includes a resizing facility.
Best of luck,
